Access to early learning, including reading and math, is not equitably available to all children who will enroll in the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD). That’s why we provide funding for summer programming that boosts classroom readiness for incoming Kindergarten students.

Opportunity gaps start early, so investing in early childhood has the biggest impact.

Kinder Bridge

Impact on Education partners with the Boulder Valley School District to offer Kinder Bridge as part of BVSD Summer Summit. Our funding provides access to early learning to over 270 incoming Kindergarten students, including free transportation to and from school, and nutritious meals.

BVSD schools are well-positioned to provide young children and their families with high quality early learning experiences.

What children learn

Students who participate in the program will be equipped with the necessary skills and confidence to transition smoothly into kindergarten by simulating routine structures, practicing school readiness behaviors, and being introduced to basic academic concepts aligned with kindergarten expectations.

Early learning instruction focuses on letter recognition, counting, letter sound formation and recognition, and name-writing. Students also cultivate executive functioning and social emotional learning skills which are important for kindergarten readiness.

School readiness can significantly impact everything from reading at grade level to graduating high school to being career ready later in life.
